Equipoise is the popularly referenced brand name for the veterinary injectable steroid boldenone undecylenate. Specifically it is a derivative of testosterone, which exhibits strong anabolic and moderately androgenic properties. It is considered by many to be a stronger, slightly more androgenic Deca-Durabolin. It is generally cheaper, and could replace Deca in most cycles without greatly changing the end result.
Although it stays active for a much longer time, Equipoise is injected at least once per week by athletes. It is most commonly used at a dosage of 200-400mg (4-8 ml, 50mg version) per week for men, 50-75 mg per week for women. Should a 25mg version be the only product available, the injection volume can become quite uncomfortable. The dosage schedule can be further divided, perhaps injections given every other day to reduce discomfort. One should also take caution to rotate injection sites regularly, so as to avoid irritation or infection. Should too large an oil volume be injected into one site, an abscess may form that requires surgical draining. To avoid such a problem, athletes will usually limit each injection to 3ml and reuse each site no more than once per week, preferably every other week. With Equipoise this may require using not only the gluteus, but also the outer thighs for an injection site. Of course all problems associated with 25mg and 50mg dosed products are eliminated with the newer 100 mg and 200mg/ml versions of this steroid, which clearly give the user much more dosage freedom and injection comfort.
How to use:
Equipoise is a very versatile compound. We can create a number of drug combinations with it depending on the desired result. For mass, one may want to stack it with Anadrol 50 (oxymetholone) or an injectable testosterone such as Sustanon 250. The result should be an incredible gain of muscle size and strength, without the same intensity of side effects if using the androgen (at a higher dose) alone. During a cutting phase, muscle hardness and density can be greatly improved when combining Equipoise with a non-aromatizable steroid such as trenbolone acetate, Proviron (mesterolone; 1-methyl DHT), Halotestin (fluoxymesterone), or Winstrol (stanozolol). For some however, even the low buildup of estrogen associated with this compound is enough to relegate its use to bulking cycles only.
